University regulations require that you submit the final examined version of your thesis directly to Registry (Postgraduate Research).
Once you find the details of the thesis you wish to consult, you can either download it immediately, or make a request for the thesis to be digitised.
If you do not find the thesis listed in the ETh OS database, please follow the instructions provided.
Many theses written before 2005 are located to the Research Reserve.
The thesis collection from the Medical Library has been relocated to the library's Research Reserve.
